Description:
This document is a copy of military orders, dated May 24, 1838, from Major General Winfield Scott to commanders of the various regiments involved in the removal of the Cherokee Indians from the state of Georgia to territory beyond the Mississippi. The commanders are required to make repeated passes through the Cherokee country in Georgia for the purpose of imprisoning the Cherokees and transporting them to an emigration depot at one of three locations: the Cherokee Agency, Ross's Landing, or Gunter's Landing. Orders are also given respecting the treatment of and provisions for the Cherokee prisoners. The orders appear to have been prepared by Lieutenant Colonel W.J. Worth.
